Sad to be nearing the end of this tea:( It’s a nice sweet tart blend. Much lighter in flavor than I had imagined, but thankfully so. I love the sweet lemon and tart berry in this fruit blend. I needed this as a refreshing cup today after so many caffeinated teas today!
555 Tasting Notes
Used the Tea Randomizer (http://www.jaydeee.net/pickatea.php) to choose my tea this afternoon and this was the winner.
Fujian Baroque was the winner. Perfect selection for this afternoon. I like the light malty flavor. It has strong hints of berry fruityness.
I’m very new to drinking unflavored teas, but wanted to pick up a few to try when I visited the Adagio store. I like that the leaves were available to sniff at the store, which is why I chose this tea. It has a nice aroma of fruit and a bakey ness to the dry leaves.
I won’t rate this one until I try a few more cups. But I do like it!
Enjoying this with a little sweetner today in my new teapot. I ordered a teapot from teasource on Friday and it arrived today! Such awesome service.
This tea is perfection with a little sugar. Brings out much more of the vanilla flavor and softens the mint a little. Enjoying this blend very much!
Think I may have steeped this too long today. It’s tasting more of black tea and zabaglione and not the bright tart strawberries from the first few cups. That, or I need to shake up the bag and get more berry parts in the brew. Still a good cuppa, just different.

Had two large cups of this with our late dinner tonight. Iced this tastes like orange jell-o. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing, but it is sweet and refreshing and a great replacement for soda. May have to find some sparkling water to try this with next. I think I like the flavor better hot much more.
Made this latte style with some steamed (aka warmed in microwave) milk, equal parts milk and water. It isn’t as tasty as the stovetop chai method, but it does pretty well when I don’t want the hassle of the stovetop method. Sweet and spicey and warming this evening. Need an assam to add to the mix of this tea.
This tea has more spice taste, than coconut, but it does have a sweet finish. Enjoying this sans additives today, although it would hold up to cream and sugar quite well. Finding Chai’s more soothing with the cooler weather this week.
Increasing the rating quite a bit as I have been enjoying this tart sweet tea more lately. And it’s not a caffienated tea!

Ahhh…this is as good as I remember it. This was the cup of tea that started it all. Had an immensely flavorful cup at Starbucks when they first came out with the tea sachets. Was so impressed with the flavor I started my tea addiction, found teavana, found steepster and now have the cupboard to show for my addiction!
Sweet, smooth with a little bit of a spicy tingle in the aftertaste. This is good!
Bought this last winter when I had a really bad cold. I like it better now that it is more leaf in a sachet than the prior tea bag form. Nice minty relief. Great relief for a sore throat and stuffy nose.
Decupboarding this tea today.
Not as much delicious pomegranate flavor as I remember, but still delicate and sweet and definitely oolong. Ooooooolong. I’m loving the oolongs lately.
Trying to reduce the teas in tins/bagged teas I have crowding my cupboards this week. In preparation for new Teavana teas (Berry Mojito sounds amazing…hoping the stores have them tomorrow or ordering online if not), Davids teas and Teasource teas…maybe a teaguys and praise tea company order. Too many teas to try! I need to see if any local stores carry harney’s cranberry autumn because that sounds fantastic for right now as well.
Not quite as sweet, creamy and minty today. I only steeped for 3 minutes, but it didn’t have that dessert tea taste it did the first time. I do enjoy the mint and black tea combo though. Nice head clearing tea, with a smooth mint and mellow black tea (if steeped 3 minutes)!
I’m not sure how I feel about this tea yet. I taste the cinnamon, tastes like cinnamon bark rather than sweet cinnamon flavoring. I think I’m getting a bake-y taste in the tea…but I could be imagining it or trying to hard. Might have to try this with cream and sugar to see if that makes it how I thought this tea would be. I just want something more from it that I’m just not getting from the black tea itself.
I love love love the scent of this tea steeped. I sniffed it until it was room temperature. I think it was the happy citrusy lemongrass that did it for me. I don’t care for the taste as much as I enjoyed the smell. It is arlight. Something in it is very herbally in a way I’m not sure I like. I’ll try a few more bags and see if it grows on me a bit. It is nice to have another herbal blend to drink in the evenings. And I now have the perfect 5oz cup for one tea bag. Adagio’s tasting set cups are my new favorite cups. I haven’t experimented with the “tea pot” part of the set yet, but I need to order more so I can get more of these cups! Great size for all the samples I’ve been trying.
This has a hint of pumpkin flavor. I was hoping the spices would be stronger, like a pumpkin spice or pumpkin chai, but that’s not what it is marketed as. It is a very warming drink. Halfway through the cup I added a tablespoon of pumpkin spice coffeemate and made more of a tea latte. Maybe a dash of cinnamon would be a nice final touch. This will be a good winter drink, the mellow warmth from the spices will be appreciated with cooler weather.
Great mango flavor, nice full flavored black tea blend. Short and sweet notes today as I am tired and making several typos as I go. Enjoyable blend, nothing especially memorable though.
Tried this with some rock sugar today. The sugar brings more flavor out of the spices. I will have to try a second steep without to compare. Not much else to say. My brain is telling me I need to sleep. Too many mornings up at 3am to get to work at 5 this week. When does Friday come?
So smoothly blended is this chai rooibos blend. I drank the cup up quite quickly. Thanks oOTeaOo for the sample of this. I will be ordering some with my next adagio purchase for sure. The spices are just how I like them, and the vanilla sweetens it just enough so I don’t need to add any sugar or any cream.
Strong tea base sweetened by the coconut with a great mango flavor. Not much else to say, but this was the perfect afternoon cuppa!
Now this is a Puerh I can drink. It’s smooth, earthy and sweet. It’s the sweet part that is really making this work for me. The coconut and cocoa make this really enjoyable. There is definitely a nutty taste mixed in with the sweetness. I’m just so happy to have a puerh that I can drink a full cup of, and am contemplating drinking more of! Thanks LauraR for sending this tea my way! I hope to try a few more infusions with these leaves and will report back.
I love bergamot scent, and love it in my black teas as Earl Grey. I’ve tried a few green Earl’s and been less than impressed….until now. I think the cream notes are what I needed to finally enjoy a green earl grey tea. The cream/vanilla flavor adds a smoothness to the flavor that lightens the bergamot and lets it just slip over my tongue. Much more of a silky feel with the creamy taste than I’ve experienced with other Green Earl Greys. And the bergamot is nice and mellow, enough to know it is still there, but not choking me with its perfume. Very nice.
Thanks again to Laura R for this great sample!
This tea is so much more than I had hoped for. When I glanced at bag in the box of samples LauraR sent me, I thought it was just going to be another strawberry green tea blend. Same old same old. Oh, was I wrong. This tea has so much going on but it all blends itself together very well. It tastes like a sparkling strawberry and mixed berry tea with similarities to root beer in it’s sparkle. It tastes like there is sarsaparilla mixed in with all of the goodness of this tea. I have to have another cup. This cup is gone. Teaguys make some great tea! Can’t wait to try more:)
